WoBoD: The World Book Day Award

Once again, we are inviting primary and secondary schools in the UK & Ireland to take our creative challenge for the chance to win even more life-changing book prizes than ever before, to transform your school’s reading habit.

A Child of Books takes you on an inspirational journey of discovery, unlocking magic and adventure and celebrating the power of books and the imagination. So we want YOUR SCHOOL to celebrate your favourite books, those timeless stories you want to share with other story fans.
